Tennessee Tobacco Tax Bonds


Tennessee Tobacco Tax Bond Information

A Tobacco Tax Bond is required for businesses engaged in the manufacturing, distribution, wholesale, or warehousing of cigarettes, smokeless tobacco and other tobacco products. The surety bond guarantees that the business will pay taxes as required by the governing jurisdiction, often a state Department of Revenue or Alcohol Tax and Firearms Agency (ATF). These surety bonds are also known as ATF Bonds for this reason.

See the Alcohol Tax Bond (Federal/TTB) for federal tobacco surety bonds which are required by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) and may be classified as a TTB Bond.
